Electronica 2 - Jean Michel Jarre

Intriguing and promising collaborations - Pet Shop Boys, Gary Numan, Gesaffelstein and Edward Snowden (!) for instance - made me download this although I had sniffed at and then snubbed its predecessor, 'Electronica 1', from last autumn. 

This is ambitious, audacious, talented electronic music, and there is no denying Jarre's status as a pioneer in his field. Yet, I reckon too much water has flowed under the bridge since 'Oxygen' and so for all its qualities, this feels dated. 
I'd much rather 'Justice' released something new...
